Blogger Barry: This recipe was given to me 2 years ago. If you
like Peri Peri chicken, done in the style of a famous international
franchise, then try this out. It is stunning!
Portuguese PERI-PERI CHICKEN:
1.5 kg CHICKEN PORTIONS – Ideal legs + thighs. BREASTS ARE O.K BUT
TEND TO DRY OUT.
SQUEEZE JUICE OF 3 LIMES AND MIX WITH:
1 tbsp BIRDS-EYE CHILLI POWDER. For milder, use less hot Chilli
1 tbsp GROUND BLACK PEPPER
1 tbsp CRUSHED GARLIC
1 tsp SEA SALT
ADD UP TO 40 ml OLIVE OIL TO BE MIXED WITH OTHER INGREDIENTS TO
FORM A ‘RUNNY’ PASTE.
RUB PERI-PERI PASTE INTO CHICKEN, Never rub your eyes!
PRE-HEAT OVEN AT 220 C
USING AN OPEN ROASTING PAN
COVER rubbed chicken AND LEAVE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES TO ABSORB
PERI-PERI. – The LONGER IS BETTER. If milder is used, let almost
marinade for 24 hours. (I’ve found the longer it stands, the
COOK AT 190 C FOR +- 45 MINUTES OR UNTIL CRISP. SERVE ON RICE WITH
MELBA TOAST AND CRISPY SALADS.
Or on buttered Portuguese rolls.
Braaing / Barbecuing over medium coals is even better!
